Newspapers win over Web for job seekers

Dec 21, 2005

Three out of four job-seekers use newspapers to look for jobs rather than the Internet, the Conference Board reported Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the New York research group found that three out of five job-seekers go online to find employment. The board surveyed 5,000 households.

"Newspapers are still the most common method of looking for a job in three of the four major regions across the U.S. and in all but the top income group. The Western (United States) is the only area of the country where the Internet topped newspapers among those seeking jobs. An impressive 63 percent of job searchers 55 years and older in the Western (United States) reported searching the Internet, while just 36 percent of this age group did so in the Southern (United States)," the board said in a news release.
